What's coming up on my blog in the next while?
1. Final post on my sampler quilt, that I started in 2006 - 3 houses ago. I finished it earlier this year, and planning a blog on it soon. It's a traditional 6 block sampler, hand quilted. The handquilting really stands out in the photo below.

2. Mandala Mania! I started playing with Spirals from RaNae Merrill's book - Spiralmania. This summer, I found out that she has a new twist on Spirals - creating mandala's! This fits right in with my own spiritual and Reiki journey. Turns out she was coming to Ontario for whirlwind guild tour - I had a pick of three different guilds / workshops in the area. I decided to go to the workshop hosted by the Oxford Quilter's Guild - a two day workshop!! The piece below is missing 2 sections per "wedge" - 8 wedges in the mandala.  A whole lotta fun. and very small pieces. love the paper piecing!

3. sneak peek at a gift I'm working on (more on it after I give it away). Carol at Creative Sisters in Kitchener gave me a big hand in matching a base colour to my prints, and figuring out the back. Right now I just have to bind it and wrap it!

What kind of adventures are you having?

I do have my share of quilting adventures- I have quilted seriously???? since 1996. Your joy quilt is brilliant and has had quite a journey. I hope that your mother is recovering- what fun to be able to quilt with your mother.
I have collected Kaffe Fabrics for awhile now- I also have a few of his books. He came to Edmonton a couple of years ago and so I got to hear him speak about his process. He does love color - lots of it ! I am not sure what I am going to create with my fabrics but it is indeed a someday quilt.
Hope you have had a fun time meeting some new to you quilt blogs.
Regards from Edmonton,
